The Cardinals are in first place (for now) - A Hunt and Peck

Happy Monday!

After playing a week worth of games against the weakest team in their division, the Cardinals have put themselves in first place in the National League Central.

Of course, let us not become too excited. The Milwaukee Brewers are right on the Birdos’ heels in second place. While the Cardinals are 8-2 in their last ten games, the Brewers nearly kept pace at 7-3. The Pirates have cooled a bit since their hot start, going 3-7 in their last ten games, having lost two of three to the Rockies and getting swept by the Phillies over the weekend. Then, of course, there is the Cubs - a team that has gotten off to a sluggish start, but has the talent to make a run at anytime.

After twenty-one games into the season, the Cardinals are at the top, but there is much more baseball to be played. Should be fun!
